Great friendly place to grab a quick pizza before a trip to the Rivoli Cinema. The pizzas are really good, and they have a great selection of toppings. Kids well catered for, alcohol is available for purchase too. Very noisy when busy, a great atmosphere...More

This was walking distance from our lodgings and a perfect choice for pizza and a beer. Airy, bright and friendly and the pizza was good.
